So... the Muppet Show #1, huh? Thankfully the interwebs can provide a more entertaining intro than I this week...

Muppet Show #1
as selected by guitarsmashley[/center]
Story and Art by Roger Landrige

Acclaimed creator Roger Landridge's zany romp across The Muppet Show stage continues! This issue is positively GONZO! Literally. But what exactly IS Gonzo? And how expensive is he to insure? Gonzo ponders these mysterious questions, all while performing his hilariously dangerous routine, which might be shut down by the theater's insurance agent!

Flash: Rebirth #1
As selected by amlah6 via poll[/center]Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Ethan Van Sciver

Through the decades, many heroes have taken the mantle of The Flash, but they all ride the lightning that crackles in the wake of the greatest hero the DC Universe has ever known, the man who sacrificed himself to save the Multiverse: Barry Allen!

Following the events of FINAL CRISIS, Barry has beaten death and returned to a fast-paced world that a man out of time wouldn't recognize. Or is it a world that is only just now catching up? All the running he's done before was just a warmup for the high-speed race that he and every other Flash must now run, because even though one speedster might have beaten death, another has just turned up dead! From Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, the visionaries responsible for the blockbuster GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH and THE SINESTRO CORPS WAR, comes the start of an explosive and jaw-dropping epic that will reintroduce to the modern age the hero who single-handedly birthed the Silver Age of comics! DC history will be made, and the Flash legacy will be redefined!

If you would like to join the group it's easy. Just post a review and I'll add you to the member's list. As long as you stay active, eventually it will be your turn to make a pick.

With $4 comics becoming the norm, the economy being what it is and the growing popularity of mail order services the Review Group recognizes that it's becoming harder and harder to commit to participating each and every week. As long as you can post one review per calendar month you will stay in the member's list. It doesn't matter if you post your review the week of it's release or if you post it later. Going forward, there is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make with the new format is that if you don't plan on posting a review or if you're going to be posting late is that you drop a note in the thread so that I can keep track of who is active and who isn't. The Spreadshee of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.


Image
Comics are to be scored on a scale from 1-10. 1 being suck, 10 being a damn good comic. Beyond that, there's no right or wrong.

Image
If it's your week, you must announce your selection by 5pm EST the day Diamond releases it's shipping list. If you do not announce your pick at that time, I will add a poll to the thread that will remain open until 12pm EST so that the group can make the selection for that week. To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays.

I tried and tried to give away my pick in the mod game, but since that was a fail I guess I'll just have to put up a poll tomorrow and let the group decide what we'll be reading next week. Lots of good choices: Flash Rebirth, 70th Anniversary Cap, Franklin Richards, etc.

So is Amlah Milton Berle or is that Yoni being the book he picked this week? :wink:

Sadly I'm not sure if I got it. I'll have to ask my comic guy if they have a copy.

I'll try to pick this up, since I can later use it to lure small children into the back of my van. I'm not holding out a lot of hope that my shop will have it.
